Clean with white vinegar counter or floor where you think the cause are attracting the ants. This causes them to lose their direction due to them not baring the odor. Mixing half water and half vinegar to keep them away. It is also a good idea to clean a couple times a day with this solution to eliminate the ants. You can also use your spray bottle solution to get rid of spiders. The acid in the vinegar will kill spiders on contact when sprayed directly to them.
